Item Description

Imagine a sentimental portrait of you or your loved ones, capturing delicate expressions for all eternity, photographed in a way which evokes emotion, mood and stirs memories. Come join award-winning G.E. Masana as he invites you to enter his world of art with a portrait sitting, which includes this 20" masterpiece portrait (valued at $3000), a blend of photography artfully hand-crafted with the classic look of a timeless painting, at his studio in NYC's elegant Hotel Elysée. 

In 2017, Mr. Masana was selected to include these very same portrait sittings in the Four Seasons gift bags for the 2017 Golden Globe Awards (Meryl Streep, Emma Stone, Ryan Gosling were among the celebrity recipients). Masana?s signature style of photography blended with artful, painterly touches is inspired by works of the classic Masters of Art through the ages, such as Vermeer, Rembrandt, Caravaggio, among others, whom Masana studied early in his career. Trained in illustrative technique several decades ago, some of his teachers harkened back to the original ?Mad Men? days of commercial artists whose work graced the classic covers of Collier's and Harper's Magazine. It was an era of iconic illustration. He is a living link to that golden age of artists. A published, award-winning photographer, today his works are in demand, seen in the finest homes and cherished by clients in virtually every continent in the world.
